I was pretty blunt, human, when talking blame and ranting during my editor posts. Those made me a little uncomfortable to write, but I needed to discuss the subject.
All of those led me to thinking what about as a reader? How do I feel when I read negative comments from authors or publishers? How did I feel when I read someone blasting a reader for comments on their book?
I made a conscious decision not to read that author. I lost interest based on their actions I won’t say this was logical, but if this was their reaction to one reader – will they snap at me if I ever said anything they didn’t like?
Here’s another thought and question to you – given my recent opinions have I influenced your interest in reading my work?
